Our Mission

The Provident Bank Foundation was established in 2003 with the intent of supporting not-for-profit groups, institutions, schools and other 501(c)(3) organizations that provide valuable services to the communities served by Provident Bank. The Provident Bank Foundation is committed to strengthening and sustaining its relationship with communities in the Bank's marketplace.

Funding Priority Areas

The Provident Bank Foundation (PBF) is committed to enhancing the quality of life in the communities served by Provident Bank. PBF makes grants in three priority areas:
Community Enrichment, Education, and Health, Youth & Families.

Community Enrichment

The Provident Bank Foundation understands that a vibrant community is the cornerstone of a high quality of life. This is why we invest in those institutions that contribute to a sense of community and offer a diversity of programs that make people healthier, happier, and safer. To achieve these ideals and enrich our communities we fund programs that drive economic development, contribute to a more well-rounded community experience, and provide increased access to information and specialized learning opportunities.



The Provident Bank Foundation believes that a good education requires strong academic support and curriculum development. To give people of all ages the tools and knowledge to succeed in an increasingly complex economy, we support innovative programming that expands access to, and improves the quality of, well-rounded educational experiences.


Health, Youth & Families

The Provident Bank Foundation is committed to encouraging better health, having youth reach their full potential, and making families stronger, three ingredients for better communities. This includes having a safe place to live, access to quality healthcare, enough food to eat, mentorship opportunities, and the right academic or professional outlets to enrich oneself. The Foundation supports innovative programs to ensure people of all ages and means have the ability to improve their quality of life.
